I grew up in Rush City, MN and met my wife, Tina, in high school there. I was the youngest of 5 kids. Most of my family still lives in that area. I graduated from Bethel College in St. Paul, MN in 2003 with a Sacred Music and Music Education Major. I taught music for a few years in Elementary and Middle school in Minnesota while also working at Elim Baptist Church in Isanti, MN as the Director of Worship Ministries. I went into full-time ministry in 1997. About 5 years ago, I was called to serve as the Worship Pastor at Bethel Baptist Church in Janesville, WI. I recently completed my Master’s Degree from Liberty University in Worship Studies.
I’m married to my wife Tina and we have 3 kids – Chad (18), Emily (15) and Olivia (12). We love living in Janesville and are enjoying this stage of life with the family and great church family at Bethel.
